I will completely admit that, living in Chicago is wonderful, I love the challenges and this new lifestyle. However, I can’t help myself, France is in my blood, my accent, my way to thing and my reactions always are 300% French.
So, if you absolutely adore Paris, you are in the right blog!
France has something special and even if it has been a tough year for Paris but the city of lights has continued to shine even brighter than before. I’ve been really moved by what happened and I have to admit, I’ve been really proud to be French these last months.
What a French woman does differently?
– She doesn’t shave but wax.
– She isn’t afraid to say this dress or this skirt is really ugly.
– She always tries to eat 3 meals a day knowing that to skip a meal is a really bad habit. (and you gain weight.)
– She LOVES coffee and tea!
– She always removes her make up at night.
– She keeps her make up simple. Always. Fond de teint, mascara and eyeliner. Sometimes some red on your lips. Why would you need more?
– Her essentials: a black dress, boots, scarf and her purse.
– She only trusts Avene or La Roche Posay.
– She always put some perfume before to leave home.
– Her favorite deodorant is a spray!
– She always have a fruit like an apple in her bag.
– She drinks a glass of red wine and always comment it.

It can’t be denied that Parisian women are some of the most fashionable and stylish people around the world and you just have to search online and hundreds of blogs appear on how to emulate their style, beauty and poise. Written by 4 friends this book gives you the lowdown on their love, style and bad habits and creates a hilarious depiction of the little things which make Parisian women the charismatic characters they are.
Some of them are rules to live by : find your perfume by the time you’re 30 – wear it for the next 30 years; take a deep breath and keep it simple; your look should always have one thing left undone – the devil is in the details. It’s a must-buy, think of it as a lifestyle bible.
